Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has defended the delay in putting India on the travel “red list” to protect against the coronavirus.
He told Sky News: “It’s common practice to give people some sort of short window so they can run their business. This is the right approach to take, this is the approach we took with other countries around the world when they were put on the red list.
“The government is constantly reviewing the data, continuing to review the information we get from the scientific community in regards to which countries to put on the red list, and unfortunately India has been one of those countries that had to be added. “
Matt Hancock said two providers of Covid-19 testing for international travel have been “kicked” from the government-approved list, failing to meet their service obligations.
Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Munira Wilson said: “I have been contacted by several voters who have ordered very expensive tests from companies recommended on the government website as part of the testing program. release.
“However, some have never received their tests or some never receive their results, some receive their test late for fear of breaking the rules.
“They had to fight for reimbursements and others we heard had to leave their homes to take their test, which undermines the whole system. So what, if anything, does the department do before listing these companies, especially as demand will undoubtedly increase given the government’s willingness to reopen international travel?
Mr Hancock replied, “We have kicked two suppliers off the list of approved suppliers for international travel testing. We are quite prepared to do more if they fail to meet the service obligations to which they subscribe.
“If she wants to send the individual evidence, we will absolutely look at it. We keep this constantly and vigilantly under review. “
